A “Double Domer,” I received my BA in 2005 and my JD in 2009 from Notre Dame before getting married and pregnant in the same breath and deciding to stay home full-time. Over the past four years, I’ve had two more children, volunteered as a catechist for my parish religious education program, moved to Laurel, served as a co-leader for our Mother’s group, and became involved bringing my children to visit the elderly residents at the Little Sisters of the Poor home.
I received my BA in English Literature from the University of Dallas in 2005 and married a month later. My husband and I have lived in Maryland since 2006, Laurel since 2010 and have 4 children. I began homeschooling when my oldest was four, after having taught Latin and Public Speaking at a girls’ high school for three years. I then spent two years at St. Philomena’s Catholic Cooperative in Ellicott City, teaching Latin and helping out in the nursery before feeling called to give my oldest more one-on-one attention at home. He now attends the Heights where his father teaches, and it’s time to start Kindergarten for #2! I was so excited when Laura approached me about organizing a co-op here in Laurel. There are so many homeschoolers here, and a nearby co-op with 3 half-day meetings per month is just what we need. I have always been enchanted by classical education, having taught Latin and a little bit of Greek. When I started out teaching Stas, we based most days off of Andrew Campbell’s A Latin Centered Curriculum. I had heard of Classical Conversations but mostly built my own curricula up to this point. Catholic Schoolhouse is just what I wish I had time to create myself – perfect as either enrichment separate from a curriculum or a simple base to build upon.
I look forward to working with you!
